Over a quarter of a century ago, Philip Weltner, then president 
of Oglethorpe University, wrote an introduction to the catalog 
in which he expressed his ideas about the aims and pur- 
poses of an educated man, and the aims and purposes of the 

The Oglethorpe idea is to forge the strongest possible link be- 
tween the "academic" and "practical," between "human under- 
standing" and "know-how," between "culture" and "proficiency," 
between past and present. We are persuaded that there is ulti- 
mately no contradiction between the concepts represented in each 
of these usually divorced pairs. 

There can be no basic disagreement among educators and 
laymen about the common elements of the student's real needs 
and interests. He is to learn as much as possible about the princi- 
ples, forces, and laws influencing or governing Nature, including 
human nature and human associations; to learn to take account of 
these not only for their own sake but for growth, guidance and 
direction for himself and others; to express his deepest individual- 
ity in the work or calling most appropriate to his talents; and to 
discover his proper place, role, and function in the complex rela- 
tionships of modern living. 

Living should not be an escape from work. Education should 
therefore encompass the twin aims of making a life and making a 
living. But inescapably he is part and parcel of society. He fulfills 
himself by the measure in which he contributes to the happiness 
and progress of his fellows. Education, as an institution of society, 
has a social obligation. It cannot neglect either the individual or 
the community without damage to both. The social order at its best 
is best for the individual; the individual at his best is best for 
society. The business of education is to strive for this optimum. 

What difference should an education make? There are people, 
deficient in formal schooling, who are happy and useful. They 
understand and get along well with their neighbors. They are an 
influence for good in their community and earn a living by honest 
effort. Any truly educated man displays the same traits. The differ- 
ence is in degree rather than kind. 

Whereas it is usual for people to understand their fellows, how 
much wider should be the sympathies of the educated man! His 
contacts go beyond the living and embrace the seers of all the 
ages, who as his companions should inform his mind and enlarge 
his vision. 


Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic and scien- 
tific forces at work in our world. Creative brains and individual 
initiative, tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, are 
the only sources of payrolls compatible with a free society, an 
improving living standard, and a better way of life. Where else 
can we look for this creative urge other than to adequate education 
of qualified talent! 

We make no claim that formal education inevitably bestows 
these benefits. We insist that it can. If that be true, how may the 
mark be reached? We shall always have to remind ourselves as 
teachers that education is a difficult art. The pitfalls we would shun 
are hard to escape. Of all people, the teacher must remain the 
most teachable. The quest for wisdom is never-ending. We, too, 
must continually grow in order to stimulate growth in those who 
come to us to learn. We shall also have to remind ourselves that 
subjects are merely the means; the objects of instruction are the 
persons taught. We must be forever mindful that education, in 
order to be true to itself, must be a progressive experience for the 
learner, in which interest gives rise to inquiry, inquiry is pursued to 
mastery, and mastery at one point occasions new interests in 
others. The cycle is never closed, but is a spiral which always 
returns upon itself at some higher level of insight. Growth in 
everything which is human must remain the dominant objective 
for the individual and for society. 

We therefore stand for a program of studies which makes sense 
from first to last, which hangs together, and which promiotes this 
desired result. Not only in professional training but also in the 
education of the human personality, the materials of instruction 
must have a beginning, point in a definite direction, and prepare 
for all that ensues. We necessarily make provision for and give 
scope to diversified talents in preparation for varied careers. But 
this much we all have in common: each man has to live with 
himself and all have to live with their fellows. Living in community, 
with human understanding, involves arts in which we are all 
equally concerned. 

Throughout the essay there is the pervasive theme that the 
educated person takes his education out with him, and involves 
his knowledge and understanding in his contacts with others, in 
his private life, in his social life, and in his career. A good educa- 
tion is one that pervades a life in all its facets, and is not just, like 
fancy china, "good for Sundays only." 

The post- World War II world has speeded up and changed some 
of its values, but the Oglethorpe idea has not changed. We still feel 


that the aim of a good education is, as Dr. Weltner put it, to enable 
our students to live "in community, with human understanding." 
Our own community is a small one, but small for more than just the 
pleasures that can ensue when everybody knows everybody else. 
Our smallness enables us to work together as a unit, to achieve a 
unity of goals, and to grow together in our pursuit of them. At 
Oglethorpe one's major or one's career goal is of less importance 
than one's membership in an academic community dedicated to 
the intelligent pursuit of the means to a better world. Our basic 
core of required courses does more than give the student a general 
overview of the world in which he lives; it gives him a common 
background with his fellows, both in the student body and the 
faculty, out of which, like a fertile soil, the Oglethorpe community, 
ever changing, ever improving, can grow and prosper.

Oglethorpe's history dates back to 1835 when a group of Georgia 
Presbyterians, influenced by the example of Princeton University, 
secured a charter for the operation of a church-supported univer- 
sity in the academic pattern of the nineteenth century. Actual 
operations commenced in 1838 at Midway, a small community 
near Milledgeville, at that time the capitol of the state. 

For nearly three decades after its founding, the university stead- 
ily grew in stature and influence. Its president during most of that 
time, Samuel K. Talmage, provided gifted leadership and, at the 
same time, gathered about him a faculty of unusual ability, at least 
two of whom would achieve real distinction: James Woodrow, an 
uncle of Woodrow Wilson and the first teacher in Georgia to hold 
the Ph.-D. , and Joseph LeConte, destined to world fame for his work 
in the field of geology. 

Oglethorpe alumni went forth in those years to play roles of 
importance in various fields. Perhaps the best-known of her 
graduates was the poet Sidney Lanier, a member of the Class of 
1860, who remarked shortly before his death that the greatest 
intellectual impulse of his life had come to him during his college 
days at Oglethorpe. 

But the life and service of the school were suddenly cut short in 
the 1860's as Oglethorpe became a casualty of war. Her students 
marched away to become Confederate soldiers; her endowment 
at length was lost in Confederate bonds; her buildings were con- 
verted to military use as a barracks and hospital. In a sense, her 
fate became bound up with that of the Lost Cause. 

After the close of the conflict an effort was made to revive the 
institution, first at Midway and then by re-location in Atlanta. 
However, the ravages of war, together with the dislocations of 
Reconstruction, posed obstacles too great to overcome, and in 1872 
Oglethorpe closed its doors for a second, and seemingly final, 

But four decades later, thanks largely to the determined energy 
and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, the school was revived, char- 
tered in 1913, and moved to its present location on the northern 
edge of metropolitan Atlanta. The cornerstone of the first building 
was laid in 1915 in a ceremony witnessed by members of the 
classes of 1860 and 1861; symbolically, thus, the old and the new 
were linked. 

From then until his resignation in 1944, President Jacobs became 
and remained the guiding spirit of the endeavor. He developed a 
number of ideas and enterprises which brought national, and 


even international, recognition to the school. Most notable among 
these were the establishment of a campus radio station as early as 
1931, and the completion in 1940 of the Crypt of Civilization to 
preserve for posterity a cross-section of twentieth-century life. 

Still a new era opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1944 when 
Dr. Philip Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a group of 
faculty associates, initiated a new and exciting approach to un- 
dergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe Idea." As de- 
scribed more fully in the preceding section, the new departure was 
founded on the conviction that education should encompass the 
twin aims of making a life and making a living, and that toward 
these ends a program of studies should be developed which made 
sense from first to last and which meaningfully hung together. 

The last twenty years of Oglethorpe's history have revolved 
around the central issue of finding more effective means of an- 
swering the challenge posed by these fundamental purposes. 

At the same time, though the University is sympathetic toward 
all religions and encourages its students to affiliate with a local 
church or synagogue of their own choosing, formal support from 
church bodies was discontinued. Today Oglethorpe stands as a 
wholly private and non-sectarian institution of higher learning. 

The College has also developed a program of physical expan- 
sion to keep pace with its academic growth. Five new dormitories 
and a new student union building were opened in the spring of 
1968. The new complex was designed not only to add additional 
space to campus facilities but also to blend architecturally with the 
existing pattern of buildings on the campus. Traer Hall, a new 
women's dormitory, was completed in 1969. 

The new science center was completed during the fall of 1971 
and houses the science and psychology departments. 

Renovation of Lowry Hall for a new four-floor library facility was 
completed in July of 1972 as was the renovation of Faith Hall for a 
student infirmary and auxiliary services building. 

Phoebe Hearst Hall was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a 
classroom building. Most of the classes with the exception of sci- 
ence and psychology are held in this building located directly 
across from Lupton Hall. 

Lupton Hall, which contains all the administrative offices, was 
renovated in early 1973. Students can find the Office of the Dean, 
Registrar, Financial Aid, Admissions, on the first floor; the Busi- 
ness Office on the lower level; and the Office of University Ad- 
vancement, Alumni Office, Dean of Students, Office of Counseling 
and Placement, Dean of Administration, and the President's Office 
on the second floor. 


Future plans for the development of the Oglethorpe physical 
plant include the addition of a Fine Arts Center and additions and 
renovations to the athletic complexes, including Hermance 

To all of this, it may be finally added, Oglethorpe enjoys the 
great asset of location in Atlanta — one of the great metropolitan 
centers of the South and one of the most rapidly developing in the 
nation. A city blending the graciousness of the Old South with the 
social progress of the New, Atlanta is a key center of transportation 
for the entire Southeast, with excellent service by air, rail, and bus; 
it is also a hub of the modern highway system being built through 
the region. With a metropolitan population of well over a million, 
an ideal location in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and a 
temperate climate throughout the year, the city offers many attrac- 
tions and cultural opportunities to the Oglethorpe undergraduate 
as a part of his whole development.

Oglethorpe University has an air-conditioned library located in 
Lowry Hall. It has a large reading-reference room (The Estelle 
Johnson Library Room) on the first floor, and also an outdoor 
reading patio on the same level at the north end of the building. 
Individual student conference rooms are available, as well as 
individual carrels in the book stack areas. A special area is pro- 
vided for microform materials. The Library of Congress classifica- 
tion system is used in an open stack arrangement, allowing free 
access to all users on all four floors. 

The collection of over 140,000 items includes books, periodicals, 
microforms, and audiovisual materials. More than 300 periodical 
subscriptions provide a diversified range of current information. A 
Special Collections room includes materials on James Edward 
Oglethorpe and Georgia, Sidney Lanier (an Oglethorpe alum- 
nus), and other collections of autographed books and unique vol- 
umes. The library has the only known contemporary oil portrait of 
General Oglethorpe in existence. 

The Sears Collection of Children's Literature contains over 2,000 
volumes of children's books, which help support the graduate 
program of elementary education. The Roy D. and Lottie Warren 
Collection includes volumes in Learning Disabilities. The Thomas 
H. Campbell, Jr., Collection includes volumes in Marketing and 
Business Administration. The library also subscribes to the ERIC 
(Educational Resources Information Center) microfiche publica- 
tions. The Japanese Collection consists of books in the English 
language and other materials on Japanese history and culture. 

The Oglethorpe Art Gallery, which has several exhibits each 
year that are open to the public, is located in the library. 

The library is open seven days a week during the two regular 
semesters of the academic year. On five days it is open both day 
and evening. 


The University Center is the center of campus social life. It 
houses the student lounges, television room, recreational 
facilities, snackbar, post office, bookstore, student activity offices, 
conference rooms, cafeteria and dining room, sorority and frater- 
nity rooms, radio station, and offices of Housing Director, Student 
Activities Director, University Center Director and the Chaplain. 



Lupton Hall, built in 1920 and named in honor of John Thomas 
Lupton, was one of the three original buildings on the present 
Oglethorpe University campus. It was renovated in 1973, and 
contains all administrative offices and an auditorium with seating 
for three hundred and fifty persons. The University Business Office 
is located on the lower level of Lupton Hall; the Office of the Dean, 
the Registrar, and Admissions and Financial Aid are on the first 
floor; the Office of the President, Dean of Administration, Dean of 
Students, Office of Student Counseling and Placement, Office of 
University Advancement and Alumni Office are on the second 
floor. The third floor is the site of the E.L.S. Language Center, 
which was opened in September, 1975. Classrooms, offices, and a 
lounge occupy the third floor area. The language laboratory and 
the reading laboratory are located on the second floor. 

The original cast bell carillon in the Lupton tower has been 
re-fitted and re-hung. It now has forty-two bells which chime the 
quarter hours and a daily afternoon concert. 


Phoebe Hearst Hall was built in 1915 and is in the neo-Gothic 
architecture that dominates the Oglethorpe Campus. The building 
is named in honor of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the mother of 
William Randolph Hearst, Sr. 

It was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a classroom and faculty 
office building. Most classes with the exception of science and 
psychology are held in this building which is located directly 
across from Lupton Hall. Additional renovation for a student- 
faculty lounge and an expanded computer center was completed 
in 1975. 

The dominant feature of the building is the beautiful Great Hall, 
the site of many traditional and historic events at Oglethorpe. Also 
located in the gound floor of the building is the much-publicized 
Crypt of Civilization. This time capsule was sealed on May 28, 
1940, with many components of American culture sealed within. It 
is not to be opened until May 28, 8113. 


This new science center was completed during the fall of 1971 
and houses the science and psychology departments. 
Laboratories for biology, chemistry and physics, and modern lee- 


ture halls, are located in the building. Goslin Hall was named in 
honor of Dr. Roy N. Goslin, Professor of Physics and senior 
member of the Oglethorpe faculty, for his many years of dedicated 
work for the college and for the nation. 


Built in 1 969, Traer Hall is a three story women's residence which 
houses 168 women. Construction of the building was made possi- 
ble through the generosity of the late Wayne S. Traer, Oglethorpe 
University alumnus of the Class of 1928. These accommodations 
provide for semi-private rooms. All rooms open onto a central 
plaza courtyard. As all buildings on the Oglethorpe campus, Traer 
Hall is completely air-conditioned. 


Goodman Hall was built in 1956 and renovated in 1970, when it 
was transformed from a men's into a women's residence hall. The 
building contains twenty-seven rooms and is used to house Junior 
and Senior women students. Private rooms are available. Located 
adjacent to Goodman Hall are three newly resurfaced tennis 
courts (1975). 


Five men's residence halls are situated around the upper quad- 
rangle. Two of the buildings were named for former Oglethorpe 
presidents, Dr. Philip Weltner and Dr. Thornwell Jacobs. Con- 
structed in 1968, these buildings were refurbished and carpeted in 
1975. The three story structures house all male resident students. 


The campus infirmary is housed on the upper level of Faith Hall, 
together with art studios and lecture rooms. The lower level of 
Faith Hall houses the maintenance facility. The building was 
renovated in 1972 to include overnight facilities for students in the 


The Field House is used for inter-collegiate basketball, in- 
tramural and recreational sports, and large campus gatherings 
such as concerts and commencement exercises. Built in 1960, this 


structure is scheduled for major renovation in late 1975 or 1976. 
Adjacent to the Field House are three championship tennis courts. 


The most recent renovation and construction on the campus is 
the addition of a six-lane, all-weather, reslite track which was 
dedicated in May, 1975. Also completed in 1975 was the resurfac- 
ing of Anderson Field in historic Hermance Stadium. These im- 
provements provide modern facilities for the baseball, soccer and 
track teams. The intramural football and softball teams use these 
new facilities as well. 




Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students from 
all sections of this country, as well as from abroad, as candidates 
for degrees. It is the policy of the Admissions Committee to select 
for admission to the University those applicants who present the 
strongest evidence of purpose, maturity, scholastic ability, and 
potential for the caliber of college work expected at Oglethorpe. In 
making its judgments, the Committee considers the nature of the 
student's high school program, his grades, the recommendations 
of his counselors and teachers, and his scores on aptitude tests. 

The candidate for admission as a freshman must present a 
satisfactory high school program. In addition, he must submit 
satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College 
Entrance Examination Board, or American College Test. (Scores of 
the Florida and Iowa State Tests will be acceptable if the applicant 
has taken one of these as a result of statewide policy.) 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the American College 
Test or Scholastic Aptitude Test as early as possible during his 
senior year in high school. Details concerning the program can be 
obtained from high school counselors, or by writing the American 
College Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, Iowa City, Iowa 52240, or 
College Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, Princeton, N. I. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the materials 
which must be submitted by the applicant. No application can be 
considered and acted upon until the items indicated have been 
received. Applications will be considered in order of completion, 
and the applicant will be notified of the decision of the Committee 
on Admissions as soon as action has been taken. 

Though the exact date will vary from semester to semester, 
generally the deadline by which admissions will be closed will be 
announced by the University. 


There are two testing programs through which students may 
earn credit or exemption for required or elective courses. These 
two programs are described below. Any student who has ques- 
tions about these examinations should consult the Registrar. Up to 
sixty semester hours of credit will be accepted through these pro- 



Within this testing program are two categories. The General 
Examinations cover the areas of Enghsh Composition, 
Humanities, Mathematics, Natural Science, and Social Science- 
History. A maximum of thirty semester hours can be earned with 
acceptable scores in the General Examinations. Minimum ac- 
ceptable scores are 500 for each general area and 50 in each 
sub-total category. The Subject Examinations are designed to 
measure knowledge in particular courses. Minimum acceptable 
scores of 50 in each subject exam are required for credit. 


The University invites and urges those students who have taken 
the advanced placement examinations of the College Entrance 
Examination Board to submit their scores for possible considera- 
tion toward college credit. The general policy of Oglethorpe to- 
ward such scores is the following: academic credit will be given in 
the appropriate area to students presenting advanced placement 
grades of 5; exemption but not credit will be given in the appro- 
priate area from basic courses for students presenting a grade of 4; 
neither credit nor exemption will be given for grades of 3 or 2; 
maximum credit to be allowed to any student for advanced place- 
ment scores will be thirty semester hours. 


Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of 
higher learning are welcomed at Oglethorpe, provided they are in 
good standing at the institution last attended. They are expected to 
follow regular admissions procedures and will be notified of the 
decision of the Admissions Committee in the regular way. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as transfer credit courses 
comparable to university courses which are applicable 
to a liberal arts or a science degree. A two year residence 
requirement is in effect, but may be reduced to one year by joint 
decision of the dean and the chairman of the division in which 
the student will major. Therefore, two years of transfer work is 
the maximum given without such decision, but up to three years 
of transfer work may be granted with such decision. Acceptable 
work must be shown on an official transcript and must be com- 
pleted with a grade of "C" or better. 


Transfer students who have earned the Associate of Arts degree 
at an accredited junior college will be awarded two years of credit. 
The remaining two years of academic credit will be determined by 
the Dean of the College in consultation with the Registrar, the 
appropriate department chairman, and the student. Junior college 
graduates with strong academic records are encouraged to apply 
for admission. All financial aid awards are open to transfer stu- 
dents as well as new freshmen. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as many as thirty hours of 
United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) credits. Students with 
at least six months active military experience may be granted 
three hours credit for that experience. If the student serves for two 
years or more, he may receive six hours credit. 


In addition to regular students, a limited number of special and 
transient students will be accepted. 

Special students are defined by the University as those not 
working toward an Oglethorpe degree; they are limited to a max- 
imum of five semester courses, after which they must apply to the 
admissions office for a change of status to that of regular student or 
be requested to withdraw from the University. 

Transient students may take a maximum of two semesters of 
work, provided that they secure permission from the dean of 
their original institution certifying that the institution will accept for 
transfer credit the academic work done by the student at Ogle- 
thorpe. This permission is the responsibility of the transient stu- 


Admission to Oglethorpe is not restricted to recent high school 
graduates and transfer students. The University attempts to fulfill 
its responsibility to the entire community by offering admission to 
non-traditional students. Students with a high school diploma, or 
its equivalent, who have not been enrolled during the last five 
years are exempt from taking the traditional entrance examina- 
tions. Also, those persons who hove never completed their under- 
graduate degrees and wish to resume their study after an ex- 
tended absence are encouraged to apply. 

Admission is offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms. 
Interviews are required to determine the special needs of these 
students. Personal counseling is available to avoid unnecessary 


difficulties and to promote the development of the students. Each 
person has an individual plan according to his special needs and 

The University is able to offer admission to non-traditional stu- 
dents by recognizing their strengths in enthusiasm, motivation, 
and maturity. 


Admission to Oglethorpe is open to qualified students from all 
nations. Students who are able to give evidence of suitable 
academic background, adequate financial resources, and seri- 
ousness of purpose are eligible to apply. 


In September of 1975, English Language Services (ELS) and 
Oglethorpe University opened an on-campus English language 
center. The ELS Language Center offers intensive four- week ses- 
sions teaching English as a second language to college-bound 
international students, businessmen, and professionals. Students 
enroll in one or more sessions depending upon knowledge of 
English, aptitude for the language, and desire for proficiency. 
Residence hall facilities are available to all ELS students. 

Additional information may be obtained by writing Director, 
ELS Language Center, Oglethorpe University, 4484 Peachtree, 
Atlanta, Georgia, 30319. 


Oualiiied students may apply for an officer program leading to a 
commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine 
Corps. Commissions are offered in both ground and aviation 
components. The Platoon Leaders Course (PLC) is offered to 
freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who attend pre- 
commissioning training during the summer. Financial Assistance 
and Flight Indoctrination Programs are available. Qualified 
seniors attend twelve weeks of training in the Officer Candidate 
Course (OCC) after graduation. For details, contact the Place- 
ment Office or the Marine Officer Selection Officer. 



All correspondence concerning admissions should be ad- 
dressed to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University, At- 
lanta, Georgia. After receiving the application form, the applicant 
should complete and return it with an application fee of $10.00. 

Entering freshmen must also submit the following: letter of refer- 
ence from a high school counselor or teacher; official transcript of 
high school work; and aptitude test scores. Transfer students must 
submit the completed application form with the $10.00 application 
fee, plus the following: letter of reference from the dean of the 
college previously attended; official transcript of each college at- 
tended; a high school transcript if less than one full year of college 
work has been completed. 

When a student has completed the application process, the 
Director of Admissions and the Admissions Committee will review 
the application. Within two weeks, the applicant will be notified of 
the committee's decision. If accepted, the student will be required 
to submit an enrollment deposit to reserve accommodations for the 
appropriate term. Dormitory students submit a deposit of $200.00; 
commuters $100.00. While the deposit is not refundable, it is ap-

Oglethorpe University provides students with an opportunity to 
obtain financial assistance for part of their educational expenses. 
Students may receive several types of aid to make up their "pack- 
age" of financial assistance. 

A financial aid package may include any one or more of the 
following sources of assistance: 

Oglethorpe Merit Awards for Scholarship (O.M.A.S.) are 
awarded in amounts of $500, $700, $900, and $1,000. For freshmen, 
these awards are based on the applicant's aptitude test scores 
(SAT or ACT). For upperclassmen and transfer students, these 
awards are based on the cumulative grade point average of the 
applicant. Qualities of citizenship and potential for success are 
also part of the basis for awarding these scholarships. The 
O.M.A.S. is unique in that scholarships are awarded on the basis 
of merit rather than need and are made available to a great many 
more students than traditional scholarship programs. 

Georgia Tuition Grants (G.T.G.) are available for Georgia resi- 
dents who attend Oglethorpe. The program was established by an 
Act of the 1971 Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia Higher 
Education Assistance Authority defines the program in this way, 
"The purpose of the Act is to provide tuition assistance to Georgia 
resident students who are desirous of pursuing their higher educa- 
tion goals in a private Georgia college or university, but find the 
financial costs prohibitive due primarily to higher tuition of these 
educational institutions in comparison to public schools which are 
branches of the University System of Georgia." All students must 
complete a yearly application to verify their eligibility for the grant. 
In the 1975-76 school year, this grant is $200.00 per semester. No 
Parents' Confidential Statement is required for this program since 
family financial need is not a factor in determining eligibility. 

Basic Educational Opportunity Grants (B.E.O.G.) are avail- 
able for freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior students in 
1976-77. The Basic Grant is a federal aid program intended to be 
the floor in financial assistance. Eligibility is based upon a family's 
financial resources. Applications for this program may be ob- 
tained from the Office of Financial Aid or from a high school 
guidance office. This aid is administered in the form of non- 


Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (S.E.O.G.) do 

not require repayment. The size of the grant depends on the need 
of the individual recipient. To qualify for an S.E.O.G. a student 
must be from a family with "exceptional financial need," must be 
enrolled or accepted for enrollment, and must be capable of main- 
taining normal progress toward the achievement of a degree. 
Application for these funds is made by filing a Parents' Confiden- 
tial Statement. 

National Direct Student Loans (N.D.S.L.), previously called Na- 
tional Defense Student Loans, are long-term, low cost educational 
loans to students who have justified need for such assistance. No 
interest is charged and repayment is deferred while the borrower 
continues as a half-time student. Interest is charged at a three per 
cent annual rate beginning nine months after the borrower's edu- 
cation is terminated. These loans are available to students who 
show a demonstrated financial need through the Parents' Confi- 
dential Statement. Students electing to serve in the Peace Corps, 
Vista, or in the Armed Forces of the United States may be exempt 
from interest charges and repayment for three years. Cancellation 
benefits may be received by teaching in "poverty" areas that are 
designated by the U. S. Commissioner of Education, for teaching 
handicapped children, and for teaching in Head Start programs. 

College-Work Study Program (C.W.S.P.) permits students to 
earn part of the educational expenses. The earnings from this 
program and other financial aid cannot exceed the student's fi- 
nancial need. Students eligible for this program work part-time on 
the Oglethorpe campus. 

Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority (G.H.E.A.A.) 
loans and Federally Insured Student Loans (F.LS.L.) are long 
term loans available through banks, credit unions, and other 
lending institutions. Students desiring to seek a loan in this manner 
should consult with the Director of Financial Aid for additional 

Georgia Incentive Scholarship (G.I.S.), as defined by the 
Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority, is a "program 
created by an act of the 1 974 Georgia General Assembly in order to 
establish a program of needs-based scholarships for qualified 
Georgia residents to enable them to attend eligible post-secondary 
institutions of their choice within the state. The scholarship awards 
are designed to provide only a portion of the student's resources in 
financing the total cost of post-secondary education." Students 
who will be freshmien, sophomores, juniors, or former members of 
the Armed Services in 1976-77, should obtain an application. 

The Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund was created by the 


late Claud Adkins Hatcher of Columbus, Georgia, founder of the 
internationally known Royal Crown Cola Company and its pre- 
decessors, of which he served as president for more than twenty- 
five years. Mr. Hatcher was vitally interested in the welfare of his 
fellow man, and considered a sound educational background a 
prime requisite for intelligent young men and women. It was his 
desire to see these young people develop into responsible citizens 
and leaders in their communities and their country. 

In his will, Mr. Hatcher created a trust and stated that the 
Trustees would receive the monies and assets bequeathed to be 
used "as an educational fund to be called 'Pickett and Hatcher 
Educational Fund' (by this name to honor the memory of my 
deceased associate in business, DeWitt C. Pickett). " His will further 
stipulated that the money would be loaned and that the trust 
created would constitute a revolving fund. As loans are repaid, the 
principal and interest are again loaned for like purposes. 

Since Mr. Hatcher's death in 1933, thousands of young men and 
women have benefited from the trust he created, using the funds to 
obtain a college education. By returning the available money to its 
original source, the fund is constant — always ready to provide 
fresh incentive to new generations of deserving students. 

The Trustees of the fund serve in a fiduciary capacity only. The 
money actually belongs to deserving young people of the present 
and future who want a college education. These young people are 
beneficiaries who receive not only opportunities for a college edu- 
cation, but a trust to use those funds for educational expenses and 
then return them for the benefit of others.

writing to the Office of Financial Aid. 

Ty Cobb Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. Only 
students who are residents of Georgia and who have completed at 
least one year of "B" quality or higher work in an accredited 
college are eligible to apply for Cobb Scholarships. No applica- 
tions from undergraduate students who are married will be con- 

Although scholarships will be granted only to students who are 
residents of Georgia, a student may be given a scholarship for the 
purpose of enabling him to attend a college or university in 
another state. 

Ordinarily a scholarship will be granted only for the purpose of 
enabling a student to pursue a program of undergraduate study. 
In cases of unusual merit, however, the Board of the Cobb Founda- 
tion may, if it sees fit, award a scholarship for the purpose of 
providing financial assistance for professional study. 


Additional information may be secured from the Director of 
Financial Aid. 

The Knights Templar Educational Foundation is a loan fund 
which is owned and controlled by the Grand Encampment of 
Knights Templar of the United States of America, founded to ren- 
der financial aid to deserving students who in the first two years of 
college have indicated by their records that they are worthy to 
complete the junior and senior years. The Grand Commandery of 
each state is a division of the national Foundation and has full 
control in serving students residing within its own jurisdiction. 

The Fund thus established is a Revolving Fund. Each applicant 
for assistance must understand and agree that any sum borrowed 
is to be repaid promptly according to terms specified, in order that 
others may be assisted. Each student aided thus renders service to 
another and becomes a part of the co-operative plan. No loans will 
be made where this condition is not understood and accepted. 

Additional information may be secured from the Office of Finan- 
cial Aid. 

United Student Aid Funds is a not-for-profit corporation which 
endorses low-cost loans made by participating hometown finan- 
cial institutions to deserving students. 

United Student Aid Funds' programs bring together the 
student's public-spirited hometown financial institution (which 
makes the loan at less than the customary interest rate for install- 
ment loans) and the student's school or other sponsors (which 
provide part of the reserve fund). 


In order for a student to receive financial aid from one semester 
to another it is necessary for the student to be in "good academic 
standing. " For freshmen a 1 . cumulative grade point average will 
be necessary to continue receiving assistance, while sophomores 
must have a 1.4, juniors 1.5 and seniors 1.6. The total number of 
hours attempted will be used in the classification of eligible ap- 
plicants. All financial aid recipients will be expected to enroll and 
complete a minimum of twelve hours per semester. Failure to 
obtain twenty-four hours during an academic year may result in a 
reduction of aid for the academic year. 

To renew an Oglethorpe Merit Award for Scholarship, a student 
must attain a substantially higher grade point average. Annual 
renewals are based on the applicant's cumulative grade point 
average. In addition, twenty-four semester hours must be com- 
pleted in the scholastic year prior to renewal. 



The application procedure for the Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, National Direct Student Loan, and College 
Work-Study Program is as follows: 

1 . Apply and be admitted as a regular student. 

2. File a Parents' Confidential Statement no later than May 
1st, indicating that Oglethorpe University should receive a copy.

send it to the Director of Financial Aid. All applicants for aid 
must submit an application for a Basic Grant. 

4. Upon receipt of an official award letter, students must 
notify the Office of Financial Aid of their plans for enrollment 
and reserve accommodations by submitting their advance 

Students applying for the Georgia Incentive Scholarship and 
Basic Educational Opportunity Grant will need to submit separate 
applications which may be obtained from a high school counselor 
or the Office of Financial Aid. Students applying for the Ogle- 
thorpe Merit Award for Scholarship should request an application 
from the Office of Financial Aid. The application procedure for 
all other assistance programs may be determined by contacting 
the Office of Financial Aid.

who is -studying in the field of teacher education. Should there be

Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in installments 
are advised to investigate their lending institutions or other 
sources. Information may be secured by writing to the Office of 
Financial Aid, Oglethorpe University. Continuing students should 
complete all arrangements well in advance of registration so that 
they will not be delayed. 

All balances and new charges are payable two weeks prior to 
registration. Failure to make the necessary payments will cause 
the student to lose his place in the University. Students employing 
the Tuition Plan, Inc., or any other source of funds, are not 
exempt from paying deposits by the deadline dates. 

The applicant, upon receipt of notice of acceptance, should 
forward an advance deposit of $200 by the date specified in the 
acceptance letter. One half of this deposit will be credited to the 
student's account in the Fall semester. One half will be applied to 
the account in the Spring semester. It is not refundable. Continu- 
ing resident students are required to pay $200 advance deposit 
at the time of early registration for the Fall term. Registration is 
therefore contingent upon the deposit being paid. A $100 advance 
deposit is required of commuting students. 

Tuition and Fees $2,386.00 

Room and Board $1,200.00 

The only standard charges not included in the comprehensive 
fee are the following: 

1. STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE: Health insurance is han- 
dled separately since it is deductible on personal income tax 
returns. The cost is approximately $29.50 per year. This 
health insurance is mandatory for all resident students. 
Payment for this policy is due upon registration in the fall. 
There is also an optional major medical policy for approxi- 
mately $1 1.00 per year. 

2. GRADUATING SENIOR: Diploma fee of $15.00. 

3. DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A $100.00 damage deposit is required of 
all boarding students. The damage deposit is refundable at 
the end of the academic year after any charge for damages is 
deducted. Room keys and other college property must be 
returned and the required check-out procedure completed 
prior to issuance of damage deposit refunds. This deposit is 
payable at Fall registration. 


4. ACTIVITY FEE: A $60.00 annual student activity fee is 
charged to all full time students, payable $30.00 each semes- 
ter. This fee partially funds the yearbook, concerts, plays and 
events, subject to increase without notice by OUSA. 

5. POST OFFICE BOX: There is an annual rental fee of $3. 00 for 
a post office box for resident students. This is payable at Fall 

The semester tuition, after half of the advance deposit has been 
credited, is due before registration day. The payment schedule is 
as follows: 

*Dormitory Students Non-Dormitory Students 

Fall Semester $1,793.00 $1,193.00 

Spring Semester $1,793.00 $1,193.00 

$3,586.00 $2,386.00 

*Includes room and board. 


Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the Fall or 
Spring semesters will be charged on a per hour basis. This rate is 
$85.00 per semester hour. This rate is applicable to those students 
taking eleven semester hours or less. Students taking twelve to 
sixteen hours are classified full time. 


Students who are enrolled as evening school students will be 
charged on a special credit hour basis. This rate is $50.00 per 
semester hour. To qualify for this special tuition rate during the Fall 
and Spring semesters, a student must take all courses in the eve- 
ning. All four-hour lab courses include an additional $15.00 
laboratory fee. 


All students enrolled in Summer School will be assessed on a 
special credit hour basis. The rate for day and evening summer 
school credit is $50.00 per semester hour. All four-hour lab courses 
include an additional $15.00 laboratory fee. 

Students desiring residence hall and food service accommoda- 
tions are charged $200.00 per five week session for a double room; 
$235.00 per five week session for a single room. These fees are for 
both room and board. 



Students who find it necessary to drop courses or add courses 
must secure a drop/add form in the Registrar's Office. The form is 
the only means by which a student may change his enrollment. A 
drop/add form must be completed in the Registrar's Office during 
drop/add week. After the seventh day of classes the professor must 
approve the change in schedule. The professor may issue one of 
the following grades: withdraw passing (G), withdraw failing 
(H), or may refuse to approve a drop. In order to receive a refund 
the class must have been dropped by the end of the twentieth class 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule 
must be cleared by the Registrar's Office. The date the change is 
received in the Registrar's Office will be the official date for the 

If a student is in need of withdrawing from school an official 
withdrawal form must be obtained from the Registrar. The Dean of 
the College and the Director of Financial Aid must sign the with- 
drawal form. The date the completed withdrawal form is turned in 
to the Registrar will be the official date for withdrawal. 


The establishment of a refund policy is based on the University's 
commitment to a fair and equitable refund of tuition and other 
charges assessed. While the University advances this policy, it 
should not be interpreted as a policy of convenience for students to 
take lightly their responsibility and their commitment to the Uni- 
versity. The University has demonstrated a commitment by admit- 
ting and providing the necessary programs for each student and 
feels the student must also demonstrate a commitment in his 
academic program. 

The student insurance payment is a non-refundable charge 
which is paid directly to the insurance company under contract 
with the University. Since the coverage begins on the payment 
date and the fee is not retained by the University, it will not be 
refunded after registration day. A $100 fee will be retained by 
Oglethorpe as a processing fee when a student withdraws; all 
other fees except the advance deposit (i.e., activity fee, post office 
box, tuition, room and board) are subject to the refund schedule. 

The date which will be used for calculation of a refund for 
withdrawal or drop/add will be the date on which the Registrar 
receives the official form signed by all required personnel. All 
students must follow the procedures for withdrawal and drop/add 


in order to receive a refund. Students are reminded that all 
changes in their academic program must be cleared through the 
Registrar; an arrangement with a professor will not be recognized 
as an official change of schedule. 

All tuition refund requests will be processed at the conclusion of 
the fourth week of classes. Payment will take a minimum of two 
weeks, but will be no longer than forty days.

In order to equitably administer the refund policy there will be

for students and will be mailed on an announced day from the 
Business Office. No refund will be processed until classes have 
ceased for the semester in progress.

At the beginning of each semester, new students will be in- 
volved in an orientation program, under the general supervision 
of the Dean of Students. Orientation activities are planned to 
introduce the student to both academic and social life at 
Oglethorpe. Several traditional activities are also planned so that 
the parents of new students can become familiar with the person- 
nel and purpose of the University. Orientation group leaders from 
among the upperclassmen serve as guides and counselors during 
the period. During the orientation program, the student is as- 
signed to a faculty advisor who aids him in planning his academic 


Oglethorpe University takes the position that it is deeply con- 
cerned with the total development of the individual as a competent 
student and as a highly responsible citizen both on the campus 
and in the community. The University's high standards of personal 
conduct and responsibility are an expression of its confidence in 
each student's potential as a human being; however, each student 
must be as willing to accept adult consequences as he is insistent 
upon being granted adult freedom of decision and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowledge 
and integrity are synonymous; therefore, a firm grasp of academic 
studies will not in itself be an assurance that a student is profiting 
fully from his college experience. 

Individuals who do not desire to accept either this view of the 
University's responsibility, or live by its regulations, should not 
apply to the University for admission. Accepted students who 
demonstrate their unwillingness to meet standards will be termi- 
nated from the University. 


Undergraduate life at Oglethorpe is, in a large sense, one of a 
democratic community; student government is mainly self- 
government. The Oglethorpe University Student Association, con- 
sisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 
Parliamentarian of O.S. A. and the Presidents of the four classes, is 


the guiding and governing organization of student life at the Uni- 
versity. Meetings are held regularly and notice posted. All stu- 
dents are urged to attend. Additional information may be 
obtained from O.S.A., Box 458, 3000 Woodrow Way, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30319. 


Valuable educational experiences may be gained through ac- 
tive participation in approved campus activities and organiza- 
tions. All students are encouraged to participate in one or more 
organizations and to the extent that such involvement does not 
deter them from high academic achievement. Students are espe- 
cially encouraged to join professional organizations associated 
with their interests and goals.

University social fraternities were re-instituted at Oglethorpe in 
1967; sororities followed in 1968. At present four fraternities and 
one sorority contribute to the Greek system at Oglethorpe. 

The four fraternities are Chi Phi, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon, and Kappa Alpha. The sorority is Chi Omega. 

These social organizations contribute substantially to the 
spiritual and social betterment of the individual and develop col- 
lege into a richer, fuller experience. Membership in these organi- 
zations is voluntary and subject to regulations imposed by the 
groups, the University Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic 
Council, or by the Student Government Association. 


Oglethorpe University competes in the following intercollegiate 
competition: basketball, baseball, track, cross country, soccer, 
and tennis. 

In addition to the intercollegiate competition, a well rounded 
program of intramural sports is offered and has strong participa- 
tion by the student body. 


The Counseling Service at Oglethorpe provides professional 
assistance to students encountering personal difficulties. The ser- 
vice is available to all students at no cost. Vocational and career 
planning services are also available. 


The Career Placement Office serves two main purposes. The 
first area of assistance helps students find part time employment 
while attending Oglethorpe. A bulletin board in the Placement 
Office contains all current job needs, part or full time. The second 
purpose of the office is to aid graduating seniors in finding em- 
ployment in the field of their choice. The office keeps contact with 
many local businesses and industries for the purpose of arranging 
employment interviews for seniors. 


The residence halls are available to all full time students. There 
are five men's residence halls and two women's halls. Both com- 


plexes have a Resident Director and a staff of student Resident 

All students living in the residence halls are required to partici- 
pate in the University meal plan. Meals are served in the Univer- 
sity Center. Meal tickets are issued at registration. 


All resident students are required to subscribe to the Student 
Health and Insurance Plan provided by the University. 

The University maintains a small campus infirmary staffed by a 
registered nurse. The infirmary operates on a regular schedule, 
and provides basic first aid service and limited medical assistance 
for students covered by the student insurance plan. 

A physician visits the infirmary twice a week to make general 
diagnosis and treatment. In the event additional or major medical 
care is required, the student patient will be referred to medical 
specialists and hospitals in the area with which the health service 
maintains a working relationship. 

When it is determined that a student's physical or emotional 
health is detrimental to his academic studies, group-living situa- 
tion, or other relationships at the University or in the community, 
he will be requested to withdraw. Re-admission to the University 
will be contingent upon acceptable verification that the student is 
ready to return. The final decision will rest with the University. 


The O Book is the student handbook of Oglethorpe University. It 
contains thorough information on the history, customs, traditional 
events, and services of the University, as well as all University 
regulations. This publication provides all the necessary informa- 
tion about the University which will aid each student in his adjust- 
ment to college life.

students. Among them are the following: 

The Faculty Scholarship Award: This is made annually to the 
male student with the highest scholastic average in his junior

The University recognizes attendance at classes as the respon- 
sibility of the student. Students are held accountable for all work 
missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is determined by 
each instructor for his own courses. Such regulations are pub- 
lished and distributed by each professor at the beginning of each 


A letter grading system is used. The range of "A-D" represents 
passing work; any grade below "D" is regarded as a failure. 
Students withdrawing from a course before the end of the semester 
are given a "G" or "H", depending upon the circumstances of 
the withdrawal. Students who do not meet all the requirements of 
a course are given an "I" (incomplete) at the end of the following 
semester. If the requirements are met by mid-semester of the next 
enrolled term, the "I" is replaced by a regular grade. If they are not 
met within this time, the grade automatically becomes an "F." 
Grade structure and quality points are as follows: 

















Failure: Excessive absences 






Withdrawn Failing 






Passing (used in special cases) 


Audit (no credit) 


Though the grade of D is regarded as passing, the University 
believes that students, in order to graduate, must exhibit more 
ability than that required by the lowest passing mark. Therefore, a 
student, in order to graduate from Oglethorpe, must compile an 
over-all minimum average of 2.2. No student will be allowed to 
graduate unless this minimum is met. 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of minimum 


averages has been established. Freshmen are required to main- 
tain a cumulative average of at least 1.8 in their course work; 
sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors of at least 2.2. 


A minimum of 120 semester hours is required, of which the last 
sixty must be earned at Oglethorpe except in exceptional cases 
(see page 20). 

All core courses (or the equivalent for transfer students) plus a 
major must be completed. Requirements for majors in the various 
disciplines are listed under each section dealing with the majors 

A minimum grade point average of 2.2 is necessary. 

An application for a diploma must be filed with the Registrar at 
least one semester prior to graduation. 

The specific requirements for each degree must be completed. 

All obligations to the institution must be discharged before a 
degree is granted including a diploma fee. 

The student must be approved formally for graduation by the 


The requirements for specific majors vary among the disci- 
plines. Detailed requirements are listed in the sections dealing 
with majors. The student is advised to consult frequently with an 
advisor to satisfy both general and major requirements. 


Oglethorpe offers four degrees to those meeting the necessary 
requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of 
Business Administration, and Masters Degree in Elementary Edu- 
cation. Under the Bachelor of Arts, majors programs are offered in 
the following areas: Business Administration, Economics, Elemen- 
tary Education, Secondary Education (with concentrations avail- 
able in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies), En- 
glish, General Studies, History, Metro Life Studies, Philosophy, 
Political Studies, Psychology, Sociology. Under the Bachelor of 
Science, majors programs are offered in the following areas: Biol- 
ogy, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Pre-Nursing, Post- 
Nursing, and Medical Technology. Under the Bachelor of Business 
Administration, majors programs are offered in the following 
areas: Accounting, Business Administration, and Economics. 


Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to 
receive a degree from Oglethorpe under "Professional option." 
Through this arrangement and in accord with regulations of the 
University, the student may transfer to a recognized professional 
institution — such as law school, dental school, or medical 
school — at the end of his junior year and then, after one year in the 
professional school, receive his degree from Oglethorpe. Students 
interested in this possibility should consult with their advisors to 
make certain that all conditions are met. 


Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at least 
1.8, sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors of at least 
2.2, are placed on probation for the following term. Academic 
probation is a strong warning to the student that he must make 
substantial progress toward restoring himself to good standing 
during the following semester or be dismissed from the University. 

Evaluation of academic progress will normally be done at the 
end of each academic year but freshmen will be evaluated at mid 
year. Freshmen who receive the grade of F in all subjects will be 
dismissed. Students who do not meet the following minimum 
cumulative average scale will be dismissed for academic reasons: 
freshmen 1.0; sophomores 1.4; juniors 1.5; seniors 1.6. 

Students who do not meet these minimum requirements at the 
end of the academic year will be notified in writing of deficiencies. 
An opportunity will be given to attend summer school classes. If 
deficiencies are not corrected, the student will be dismissed. All 
dismissals are subject to review by the Faculty Council. A student 
who has been dismissed may be reinstated only upon petition to 
the Faculty Council. A petition may be filed with the registrar after 
an absence of one semester. 


For administrative and other official and extra-official purposes, 
students are classified according to the number of semester hours 
successfully completed. Classification is as follows: to 30 hours 
— freshman; 31 to 60 hours — sophomore; 61 to 90 hours — junior; 91 
hours and above — senior. 


A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no less 
than four courses each semester, but generally five courses are 


taken, giving the student a total of twelve to sixteen semester hours 
each term. Regular students in the day classes are expected to 
carry a normal load and to pay for a full schedule of courses. 
Students other than transient and night students taking a reduced 
load will pay the rate published by the University. 


Students who earn a minimum average of 3.3 or better in any 
given semester except the summer term for an academic load of at 
least five courses are given the distinction of being placed on the 
Dean's List. 


Degrees with honors are awarded as follow: for a cumulative 
average of 3.5, the degree cum laude; for a cumulative average 
3.7, the degree magna cum laude; for a cumulative average of 3.9, 
the degree summa cum laude.

Oglethorpe University operates under the semester system dur- 
ing the academic year. Two summer sessions of five weeks each, 
plus a ten week session in the evening make up the summer 


As a service to the community, the University offers an evening 
program covering three terms per year: one during each semester 
and one during the summer. Classes meet two nights each week 
(Monday and Wednesday; Tuesday and Thursday) with three 
class periods each night. To qualify for the special tuition rate 
given to evening students, a student must take all his courses in the 
evening. A student taking any course during the day will not be 
classified as an evening student. 


The Department of Continuing Education acts as a community 
service in providing adult non-credit courses for interested people 
in the community. It is Oglethorpe's desire to insure that its 
academic and physical facilities are made available to all mature 
adults who show a genuine interest in academics. From time to 
time, business and professional workshops and conferences are 
sponsored by this department. 




Oglethorpe's curriculum is arranged in six general divisions: 
Humanities; Social Studies; Science; Education and Behavioral 
Sciences; Business and Economics, and Graduate Studies. 
Academic areas included within each are the following: 

Division I: The Humanities 

English Music

Under the semester system, the curriculum offers courses of 
three and four hours credit. A full-time student carries a normal 
academic load of five courses during each term. 

A minimum of one hundred and twenty hours (or their equiva- 
lent for transfer students) is necessary for graduation. Some pro- 
grams may require additional credit. A core program according to 
the following schedule is required of all four-year students. 



The following is the core program required of all four-year

'Exemption from one or both semesters of composition may be granted based 
upon the student's scores on the composition placement test. This test is usually- 
administered the day before registration. 
**Either Zoology I and II, Botany I and II, Physics I and II, or Chemistry I and II 
may be substituted for these two requirements. 


In the following section, the courses are listed numerically by 
area within their respective Divisions. Each course is designated 
by a four digit number. The first digit indicates the course level. 
(For example: freshman is 1; sophomore, 2, etc.) The second and 
third digits designate the discipline. Each level of offerings as- 
sumes the earlier completion of necessary prerequisites. The 
number of hours refers to the semester hours credit per term al- 
lowed for the course. The designation "3 + 3" or "4 -I- 4" indicates 
that the course carries 6 or 8 semester hours of credit, respectively, 
for two semesters of work. 



Upon entering Oglethorpe University each student is assigned a 
faculty advisor who will assist the student in the preparation of his 
academic program. Responsibility, however, for taking the requi- 
site core and major courses rests exclusively with the student. A 
student may declare a major at any time during the freshman or 
sophomore year by filing the appropriate form with the Registrar's 
Office. Changes of major must also be submitted to the Registrar 
for approval. Each student must declare a major before complet- 
ing 60 semester hours. 

In addition to the required core program, most of the majors 
include three levels of courses; those prescribed for the major, 
directed electives recommended as immediately related to the 
major, and free electives allowed to enable each student to widen 
his intellectual interests. Variations of each program are possible, 
according to the particular needs of the student and the regula- 
tions of each department. Majors programs are offered in the

not to select a specific major. The degree awarded is Bachelor of 
Arts in General Studies.

of the basic core requirements; completion of a sufficient number of 
course hours to complete the 120 semester hours prescribed for an

action of the student and his assigned advisor. 





To insure the orderly completion of the program, the student 
should consult with the appropriate faculty member in the de- 
partment or division at the time of his first registration. It is impor-

Each student, to insure the orderly completion of the program 
within the scope of his major, should consult with the appropriate 
faculty member in the department or division at the time of his first 
registration. It is important that each student have his program 
fully planned from the outset so that he may be aware of depart- 
mental and divisional requirements and allowable substitutions 
and alternatives. Each student must complete the core require-

environmental and behavioral conditions which lie at the root of 
the urban crisis. The program also includes courses which deal 
with the techniques of city planning and development. Finally, 
Metro Life Studies are calculated to help the undergraduate ac- 
quire managerial skills for assuming leadership in the quest for 
ultimate solutions to the great problems in contemporary Ameri- 
can society. Graduates may pursue graduate work in urbanology 
or find employment in both public and private enterprises con- 
cerned with the development of cities.

business situations as well as a thorough knowledge of the general 
field of accounting. To prepare students to meet and master the 
changing field of accounting, a forward-looking undergraduate 
accounting curriculum has been designed. The program is based 
upon a common core of courses which examines the functions and 
the environment of business organizations. Beyond this core, the 
student may choose to study any of several related subjects in 
Business Administration and Economics. The following courses 
are required: Business Law I and II, Insurance, Quantitative 
Methods I and II, Accounting I and 11 , Quantitative Methods III, 
Computer Science I, Economics I and II, Intermediate Accounting I 
and II, Human Relations, Business and Technical Writing, Busi- 
ness Finance, Marketing, Money and Credit, Business and Per- 
sonal Taxes, Cost Accounting, Principles of Management, plus 
two accounting electives and two division electives. No grade less 
than "C" in Accounting or other Business courses may be con- 
sidered in meeting the requirements for a Bachelor of Business 
Administration degree in Economics.

The Graduate Division offers work leading to the degree Master 
of Arts in elementary education. Completion of the master's pro- 
gram requires the following steps: 

1 . Full admission to the Graduate Division. 

2. Admission to Candidacy. Apply after completion of twelve 
semester hours graduate credit at Oglethorpe. 

3. Satisfactory completion of a comprehensive final examina- 
tion. Apply after completion of all required courses but not 
sooner than one semester prior to expected graduation. 

4. Completion of thirty-six semester hours approved credit. Ap- 
plication for diploma should be made during the semester 
prior to anticipated completion of degree requirements. 


The Graduate Division is organized as one of the six academic 
divisions of Oglethorpe University. It was created in 1970 upon 
receipt from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools of 
initial approval for Oglethorpe to once again offer courses leading 
to the master's degree. Under this authorization, the Graduate 
Division offers the Master of Arts in elementary education. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well- 
qualified students with the opportunity to obtain the first graduate 
degree, to provide members of the teaching profession with the 
opportunity to enhance their competencies and knowledge in the 
area of elementary education, including the opportunity for those 
teachers not desiring a graduate degree to enhance their knowl- 
edge and skills. Inherent in the guiding philosophy is the assump- 
tion that graduate study includes more than the passing of pre- 
scribed courses and the meeting of minimum requirements. Any 
student who receives a graduate degree must possess a broad 
knowledge of the literature of his field of study, be capable of 
sustained study, exhibit the power of independent thinking, and 
possess reasonable knowledge of the techniques of research. 


All graduate work is administered by the Graduate Division, 
which is governed by the Graduate Council under the policies of 
the university. The Graduate Council is the policy-making body 
chosen from the graduate faculty and administration, under the 
leadership of the chairman of the Graduate Division. 


Upon recommendation of the chairman of the Graduate Council 
and approval of the Graduate Council, a person holding a 
bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university may be 
admitted to the Graduate Division. In addition to general require- 
ments prescribed, the applicant must submit transcripts of all 
previous work completed, satisfactory scores on the Graduate 
Record Examination (Aptitude Test), two recommendations (form 
provided) from previous colleges attended and/or employers and, 
when deemed necessary, take validating examinations or pre- 
paratory work. Candidates not previously prepared for teaching 
must meet requirements for first professional certification before 
completing requirements for the master's degree. 


Application forms may be obtained from the Office of Admis- 
sions of the University. Completed forms should be returned to the 
Office of Admissions as soon as possible but at least twenty days 
prior to the term in which the applicant expects to enroll. These 
forms should be accompanied by a $10.00 application fee (non- 
refundable). All material (completed forms, fee, transcripts, and 
test scores) should be sent directly to the Office of Admissions, 
Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, Georgia 30319. To insure proper 
consideration, all documents must be on hand at least twenty days 
prior to the proposed time of enrollment. All documents become 
the property of the University and will not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate Division in 
the term indicated on his application, he should notify the Office of 
Admissions of his plans and indicate a new date of entrance, if 
applicable. Otherwise, the original admission will be cancelled, 
the file discontinued, and a new application will be required for 
admission at a later date. 


Admission to the Graduate Division does not imply ultimate 
acceptance as a candidate for an advanced degree. For admis- 
sion to candidacy, see the section Admission to Candidacy. 

Information concerning the administration of the Graduate 
Record Examination may be obtained from the Office of Admis- 
sions or by writing: Education Testing Service, Princeton, New- 
Jersey 08540. 


Students may be admitted to the Graduate Division under any 
one of the following classifications: 

Regular. A student who has a cumulative grade point overage 
of at least 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, satisfactory scores on the GRE and the 
recommendation of the chairman of the Graduate Division, and 
who has completed all prerequisites required for admission may 
be admitted as a regular graduate student. 

Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of the stan- 
dards required for admission as a regular student or a qualified 
senior may be admitted under conditions specified at the time of 
admission by the chairman of the Graduate Council and ap- 
proved by the Graduate Council. The provisionally admitted stu- 
dent may apply to the chairman of the Graduate Division for 
reclassification when the conditions have been met. Graduate 
courses completed by the provisional student may be counted 
toward a degree after the student has been reclassified as a regu- 
lar student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing requirements 
for the bachelor's degree may be permitted to enroll in courses for 
graduate credit provided that: ( 1) he has the permission of th^ head 
of the education department and the chairman of the Graduate 
Division; (2) he is otherwise qualified for admission to graduate 
study except for the degree, and (3) his total load in a semester 
would not exceed fifteen semester hours. Under no circumstances 
may a course be used for both graduate and undergraduate 

Transient. A student in good standing in another recognized 
graduate school who wishes to enroll in the Graduate Division of 
Oglethorpe University and who plans to return thereafter to the 


former institution may be admitted as a transient graduate stu- 
dent. In lieu of full transcripts and regular applications he must 
submit a transient student application form completed by his 
graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for credit. Any 
student admitted on this basis should understand that his registra- 
tion terminates as soon as he has completed the work authorized 
by the institution from which he is seeking a degree. If he later 
elects to seek a degree from Oglethorpe University, he must make 
formal application for admission and may petition to have credit 
earned as a transient student applied toward the degree at 
Oglethorpe University. 

Unclassified. A degree holder who is not a prospective candi- 
date for a degree at Oglethorpe University, such as a person 
seeking to meet certification requirements (not applicable until 
final accreditation received) or local school requirements, may be 
admitted without presenting test scores or recommendations. 
Credit earned by a student in this category may be counted toward 
the degree only with consent of the Graduate Council. 



Registration dates for each term are listed on page 5 of this 
publication. Several weeks prior to the beginning of each term, 
students may obtain from the Registrar's Office a schedule of 
classes for that particular term. 


Courses numbered 6000 are open only to graduate students. 
Arts and Sciences courses with 4000 numbers carry either under- 
graduate or graduate credit; graduate students, however, are 
expected to do more extensive reading, prepare additional re- 
ports, and/or produce papers or other projects requiring more 
extensive research. 

The maximum course load for any graduate student is fifteen 
credit hours per semester or six credit hours in a summer term. Any 
student serving as a graduate assistant must carry a reduced load. 
A person working more than thirty hours per week normally may 
not register for more than six hours credit per semester. In all 
cases, the graduate student is urged to register for only the number 
of hours which he can successfully complete. 


Upon admission to the Graduate Division, each student is as- 
signed to a member of the graduate faculty in education who 
serves as advisor and guides the student in planning his program 
of study. 


The quality of work of courses taken in the graduate program is 
indicated by the marks A, B, C, and F. Grades of I and W are 
reserved for special cases. Listed below are requirements for each 
of these grades: 

A — Excellent, with four quality points for each credit hour 
B — Good, with three quality points for each credit hour 
C — Poor, with two quality points for each credit hour 
F — Unsatisfactory work or unofficial withdrawal 
I — Incomplete may be used if the student, because of un- 
usual circumstances, is unable to complete the required 
work in the prescribed time interval, provided he was 


doing satisfactory work. Such a grade must be removed 
by the completion of the work within one year or the 
I becomes an F. 
W — Official withdrawal may be permitted if the student's 
progress is interrupted by illness or other emergencies 
which prevent his pursuing any course for which he is 


Candidates for the master's degree must meet the following 
academic standards: 

1 . The student's overall grade point average for work submitted 
in a graduate program must be 3.0 or higher. 

2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satisfactory 
academic standards, his record shall be reviewed by the 
Graduate Council to determine whether or not he shall be 
allowed to continue in a graduate program. 


Application for admission to candidacy would be given or re- 
fused following an examination of the overall work of the student 
and careful review of his completed work at Oglethorpe. Applica- 
tion for the Master of Arts degree in elementary education must be 
filed with the chairman of the Graduate Division after the student 
has twelve semester hours of graduate study at Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity. Admission to candidacy would be given or refused follow- 
ing an examination of the overall record at Oglethorpe of the 
student and careful review of his completed work. Notice of action 
taken on application for admission to candidacy would be given in 
writing to the student and to his advisor. The student seeking the 
Master of Arts degree in elementary education must furnish certifi- 
cation by the chairman of the Education Department that he is 
eligible for first professional certification or he must include ap- 
propriate make-up work in his program. 


Required Hours. The program leading to the Master of Arts 
degree in elementary education will require completion of thirty- 
six semester hours of course credit beyond the bachelor's degree 
as a minimum requirement. The following minimum requirements 
must be included in the credit earned. 


Foundations of Education — nine semester hours 

Elementary Teaching Field courses — fifteen semester hours to 
include twelve semester hours required in elementary educa- 

Residence. At least twenty-one semester hours of graduate 
work must be completed on campus. 

Time Limit. In any graduate program all work (including the 
comprehensive examination) must be completed within a six year 
period. It is expected that the student will complete his program 
with reasonable continuity. 

Transfer, Extension, Correspondence Credit. A maximum of 
six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred from 
another accredited institution subject to the following condition^: 
(1) transfer credit will not be considered prior to admission to 
candidacy; (2) work already applied toward another degree can- 
not be accepted; (3) work must have been completed within the six 
year period allowed for the completion of degree requirements; 
(4) work must have been applicable toward a graduate degree at 
the institution where the credit was earned; (5) work offered 
for transfer must have the approval of the Graduate Division; 
and (6) acceptance of the transfer credit does not reduce the 
residence requirement. 

Under no circumstances may credit earned through correspon- 
dence work be applied toward satisfaction of degree require- 


A comprehensive final examination is required of all candidates 
for the master's degree at or about the time all other requirements 
have been met. The following regulations govern the administra- 
tion of the comprehensive examination: 

1 . The student must be registered when he takes the examina- 

2. The examinations are developed and administered by such 
members of the Graduate Faculty as may be appointed by 
the chairman of the Graduate Division. 

3. The examination covers all work prescribed by the student's 
program of work, including transferred work. 


Graduate students are charged at the rate of $55. 00 per semester 


hour. An application fee (non-refundable) of $10.00 must accom- 
pany the application. 

An application for degree must be made at least two months 
prior to commencement at which time a $ 1 5. 00 diploma fee is due. 


Students who find it necessary to drop courses or change 
courses must secure an approval drop slip from the Registrar. 
Refunds are subject to the same requirements as explained in the 
chapter on Finances.
